Myron Bassman falsely and absurdly claims President Donald Trump is an anti-Semite (Kvetch ’N’ Kvell, Aug. 15).
Trump has moved the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem; recognized the Golan Heights as sovereign Jewish land; threw the Jew-hating Israelophobic terrorist PLO out of their Washington offices; ended all aid to the anti-Israel Palestinian Authority, UN Human Rights Council and UNRWA; stopped promoting a dangerous, terrorist Palestinian state; appointed strong supporters of Israel like U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley, Ambassador David Friedman, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, National Security Chief John Bolton and Jared Kushner and Jason Greenblatt.
Trump has also repeatedly condemned anti-Semitism, white supremacists, the KKK and neo-Nazis. He visited the Pittsburgh synagogue where the anti-Semitic massacre took place and invited to the White House the Chabad rabbi whose synagogue endured an attack. And he proudly talks about his Orthodox Jewish daughter and grandchildren.
Twice, Trump was the grand marshal of the NYC Israel Day Parade.
President Trump is the opposite of an anti-Semite. He loves Jewish people and the Jewish state. He has been the greatest president for the Jewish state of Israel ever.
